Pika on Mt. Hoffman

The pika is a rare animal whose habitat is being threatened by climate change. No bigger than a tennis ball, it used to live in the 7,000 foot elevation zones, but is now rarely found below 8,500 feet, and is increasingly being forced to the high elevations of the Sierra crest of 10,000 feet and higher.
